Horizon HT-70 Three-Knife Trimmer

This Horizon 3-Knife Trimmer was removed from a production enviroment and is in good working condition. Manuals and spare parts are also included. It is located in Topeka, KS and will ship via freight truck from that location.Please view the pictures, video and specifications and contact us if you have any questions.


The Horizon HT-70 is an in-line or off-line three-knife trimmer that produces precise, clean cuts with no rough edges at speeds up to 1,000 cycles per hour. The LCD display console steps the operator through set-up and changeover, and provides continuous updates on system status. The HT-70 will accept a variable lift size up to 50 mm (2”) thick. Changeovers are accomplished in under 10 minutes, and all adjustments are external to the knife area for added safety. An advanced interlock system provides enhanced operator safety.


  • Space-saving Design
    • The HT-70 is capable of doing big jobs but requires only a small amount of floor space, taking up 1/3 less space than all its competitors
  • Easy Operation
    • The liquid crystal display panel gives simple instructions for guidance and ease in operation; no experience required.
  • Quick Adjustment to Book Size
    • The HT-70 is quick to adjust to book size, taking less than 10 minutes per adjustment. To add, for ease and safety, the cutting base does not require removal or replacement, while the top and bottom guards can be adjusted from outside the machine.


    • One or more booklets up to 5 cm in total height can be fed into the HT-70 at one time.
    • Size adjustments for various booklets are easily controlled by the simple alteration of the right-hand tab, which slides out for further ease and safety.
    • The cutting knives fall at a 30 degrees angle for precise, clean cuts that leave no rough edges. The clamps adjust to the weight and delicacy of the paper stock by applying the correct pressure from a range of 150 kg to 1,000 kg Air holes in the knives blow away any paper trimmings for easy clean-up and maintenance.
    • The liquid crystal display panel is designed to monitor every step of the trimming process, checking for errors and providing information for smooth, continuous runs.
    • The delivery belt lifts up to carry away the finished booklet to the conveyor belt, keeping them in neat, aligned piles.
